We called the Mud Hut Motel home over four days exploring Coober Pedy. We are glad we'd decided to sleep above the ground rather than under it. It could be a different story in summer, but the insulation worked beautifully and we never needed to call upon heating or spare blankets in spite of chilly nights. The room was spacious... More

On arrival we were given a very friendly greeting. Our room was at the back of the complex so therefore very quiet. The room was large, very clean, comfortable and well decorated. All essentials were also provided. We stayed 3 nights and would highly recommend staying here if in Mt Isa.

Hi Pam, Thanks for the great review - glad you enjoyed your stay and found our staff to be friendly. For now, we'll stay in Coober Pedy but maybe one day we'll branch out to Mt Isa too! Hope you had a great rest of your trip. Stacey - Manager More

We stayed here two nights and found the hotel to be clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were amazing and went out of their way to be helpful. The hotel provides an airport shuttle that we found very helpful. A top spot!

This is a busy motel but the rammed earth walls make it quiet and comfortable, with nice seats outside each room to take in the desert feel. Very friendly staff and a free shuttle to the airport. We stay here a lot of business and recommend it highly.

Best option in Coober Pedy. The rooms are clean and spacious, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I liked the Mud walls and each room has an outdoor table and chairs, great for morning coffee... The staff are friendly and helpful.

Stopped here overnight heading for Alice Springs. Very comfortable, tidy and clean. Above ground Mud buildings were well appointed and despite the cold, warm enough with the small heater in the room. Good comfortable beds.

Neither myself or my husband were excited in sleeping underground so this motel suited us. The staff were really friendly the rooms a reasonable size comfortable and really clean. No heating in the air conditioning but the heater supplied worked really well. Plenty of towels soaps etc. Would recommend this for an above ground motel walking distance to town. The... More

Our bus group really enjoyed the Mud Hut Motel. From the unique rammed earth walls featured around most rooms in the motel to the lovely evening meal and breakfast, Stacey and Jarrod were great hosts. The rooms were very comfortable and the showers warm.

The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. Our room was beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Exceptionally clean, spacious, good sized kitchen which was well-equipped, comfortable living area with good lighting. We loved the character of the room, especially the mud-brick type walls. It was well-suited to this outback environment. Also, lovely artwork on... More

Centrally-located in the middle of town, Mud Hut Motel is comfortable, very clean and reasonably-priced. The wifi was probably the best we experienced across all of South Australia and the Northen Territory. Directly across the road from a Shell petrol station (which has it's own excellent steakhouse restaurant - true story!) and around the corner from Pizza Joe's and several... More
